I decided to join in with Jess over at O Mama Mia and share a picture of my son nursing and a story to go with it. I am sad that our nursing experience is over but I am so glad that we will always have that experience together!
These pictures are from a trip we took to Seattle and Victoria, British Columbia last May when my kiddo was 9 months old. In our three day visit across the border I noticed a huge difference in the comfort level of the public and breast feeding. We went to a street fair where there was a tent set up for Moms and baby's to nurse, BTW the tent had no sides on it so it was just for comforts sake, I could still see everything that was going on around me...totally cool.
We saw this sticker on restaurant windows which I thought was so awesome! The glare from the flash makes it hard to read but it says, "Breastfeeding Friendly" at the top and "anytime. anywhere." at the bottom.
For many reasons we felt at home in B.C. and loved our stay there, the fact that breastfeeding was really no big deal, just feeding your kid, really helped.
The weekend we were there it was gorgeous, so gorgeous in fact that I had to buy shorts to wear when we went to the famous Butchart Gardens, I packed for spring in the NW, nice weather but overcast and rain right! We enjoyed the sunshine and beautiful ocean breeze and this is making me want to go back! My son nursed on the bus ride to the beautiful gardens so he was quite content for some time once we arrived. Of course when he needed to nurse there was not a bench open that wasn’t in the blazing sun, so I stood under a tree by a beautiful pond and nursed. You can see my son is half way undressed because we were all sweaty I love that my husband thought we were sweet under the tree and snapped away.
That's one of our nursing experiences want to share yours, please do and note it in the comments and visit Jess to read more stories.
